The story of Pirenopolis centers on a rich cultural diversity that balances tradition and avant-garde. The city was founded in the early 1700s, during the exploration of gold. In the early 1800s, the exhaustion of the gold mines led to the major economic decline of the city, and the few inhabitants who survived were farmers.
However, Pirenopolis continued to be a commercial point for entry to the west, since many roads in Pirenopolis became a place of commercial activity and a stopping point for those travelling throughout the state. During this period, the region was virtually isolated from the rest of Brazil, which allowed Pirenopolis to keep its original architecture and its cultural legacies.
It was only in the 1940s and 1950s, with the development of nearby Goiania and Brasilia, that the city has been revitalized . The 1970s was marked by the arrival of several new people who brought ideals from around the country and the world. Rural communities were created, while others remained in town to learn new skills and crafts. The local culture of Pirenopolis changed with the addition of crafts like handmade silver jewelry made by artists who dreamed of living an alternative lifestyle in peace with nature and with the community. The silver in Pirenopolis is known around the world and changed the economic profile of the town. Today, Pirenopolis reflects the richness of this cultural mix, making it a unique location.
